Taubman Sucks – The Movie

This just arrived in my mailbox, Hank Mishkoff has posted the movie about his free speech case on YouTube: http://youtube.com/watch?v=4ITE7ITSR6M

The movie is short.  If you want to get a feel for the real saga, you have to read his website, where he documents, in fine detail, the whole suit against him and the back in forth between himself and the lawyers.  Until very near the end, he represented himself, and did an excellent job at that.  The lawyers, on the other hand, did a good job at demonstrating their bullying skills.

This is a landmark free speech case, so everyone should learn about it.  It’s a great story about how an underdog won.
